Welcome to the Biology Department at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Graduate students can enroll in both M.Sc. and PhD programs and study with faculty in Biology and those affiliated with other Faculty of Science units at Memorial University. Our department offers several undergraduate programs including an Honours program and field courses.
A new book, co-edited by Memorial biology PhD candidate Laura Siegwart Collier, adds a valuable and unique insight to the academic literature on climate change.
In The Caribou Taste Different Now: Inuit Elders Observe Climate Change, Inuit elders and knowledge holders from eight Canadian Arctic communities — Kugluktuk, Baker Lake, Pangnirtung, and Pond Inlet in Nunavut; Umiujaq, Kangiqsujuaq, and Kangiqsualujjuaq in Nunavik; and Nain in Nunatsiavut — share their observations of climate change, including how it is affecting traditional ways of life.
As researchers and educators in the Faculty of Science, Drs. Luise Hermanutz, Bill Montevecchi, Yolanda Wiersma and Len Zedel contribute to the global body of scientific knowledge every day.
